The K4K Team Captain Role

Register your team online or make sure your teammates register online

  • Remember Team Captains must register online and create your team before your teammates can join your team. Register online HERE
  • Once you are registered online send out your team link to have colleagues, family and friends join your team.

Schedule a K4K Kick-off event

  • Kick-offs are a great way to get your team together and create excitement about Kurling for Kids. This is also a great opportunity to create awareness of K4K. Check out the tools and resources available for you in the PARTICIPANTS section

Plan team fundraising ideas

Reach out to vendors and suppliers

  • Reaching out to vendors and suppliers is a great way to raise funds within your network. It’s also a great way to build on the relationships your team network has.

Keep your team updated

  • As a K4K Team Captain, one of your most important roles is to keep your team updated. Keep the lines of communication open throughout the campaign on fundraising progress, upcoming team events and any event details. This will keep your team engaged and excited about the event.
